but they do not follow through. donald trump is telling republicans again he might run for president as a third-party candidate. the gop front-runner said wednesday all options are open if republican leaders don't treat him with respect. trump's final loyalty pledge to the gop in september and standing by his plan to temporarily keep muslims from entering the u.s. critics have caused it hateful and unconstitutional and un-american. trump says the plan is about security, not religion. >> are you racist? >> i am the least racist person that you have ever met. i am the least racist person. >> reporter: are you bigot in any way? >> i don't think so. >> islamic? >> not at all. i am a person who happens to be very smart. >> if you say no muslims can travel here from overseas you are hurting the united states' position against isis. we need the friendly muslim nation. you can't insult them like that. you can't! >> bill i disagree. people have to be vetted.

8:06 am
i know republican leaders install people and feel two things. one, they cannot win the presidency with donald trump. the other is that they cannot win the presidency without the support of trump followers. so it's a delicate little thing. you oppose trump seriously and with respect along the way, when you disagree with him. but i don't think it would be very smart for them to do what they were talking about a few weeks ago, which is let's raise a lot of money and attack this guy and slam him. the voters will figure it out. >> the argument has been made that you can't win without trump supporters. what about the counterargument that you can't win without those who are nontrump republicans and those who want to be republicans but may not have those kind of beliefs or values or rhetoric? >> this is what primaries are for, you know? donald trump is like 32%, 35%.
